    Happy Birthday King Henry VIII! On this day in history, 28 June 1491, King Henry VIII was born at Greenwich Palace. He was Henry VII Elizabeth of York’s second son, the “spare” they needed in case anything happened to his older brother, Prince Arthur. And he was needed! On the 2nd April, Prince Arthur the Prince of Wales died at the age of 15, just months after his marriage to Catherine of Aragon. Not only did Henry inherit Arthur’s position, Prince of Wales, he also inherited his wife.

    Henry VIII, c 1535, attributed to Joos van Cleve. It was painted during his brief marriage to his second wife, Anne Boleyn. The king is physically more attractive than in the later Holbein portraits. Henry holds a scroll inscribed 'Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature' (Mark 16.15). This portrait is part of the Royal Collection.
